Progress Report

Lalti Devi and all her group members are very thankful to all their guarantors for their help. Each of them received Rs. 8000/- as a microloan. After taking the loan Lalti Devi was able to purchase more materials and supply to more customers. Due to the increase in volume of business her income has also gone up. Before taking loan her income was Rs.3500/- and after loan her income is Rs.4500/-. Her two children are also happily attending school. She was also able to improve the sanitation of her house. Savitri Devi has purchased two sewing machines and hired one person after getting her loan. She is now able to provide service to more customers. Before taking loan her income was Rs.2500/- and after loan her income is Rs.3500/-. Both her children now attend school. Her standard of living has also increased. Labina Devi was able to purchase a variety of products to fulfill the demands of customers. Her business has increased and her income which was Rs.2500/- is now Rs.3500/-. Now she is also able to save a little amount of her earnings, which she is planning to use for her daughter's wedding. The group members are happy to take loans from Ajiwika as it takes repayments from its clients monthly where as other MFIs operating in this area require weekly repayments which is quite difficult for the clients. Recently, Jharkhand was declared as drought affected state but their business did not get affected. They are doing well. After repaying this loan they want a bigger loan to expand their businesses further.
